Happy Birthday to my favorite THREE year old boy!!

Today is Karson's third birthday! He is such a sweet boy and I am so proud to be his mommy! He has the best personality and is so silly. I love so many things about him... his "surfer dude" hair, his HUGE smile, the way he says "mm-hmm" instead of yes, his love for his "brobers" and his "baby "seeser." I love when he pretends. You can find him skipping sideways through the house "skateboarding," or runny with his arms out in front of him flying like "pooperman" ... (Superman). I love when he cuddles up next to me and says "I love you Mommy" and then gives me a big kiss and hug. I love him. He is so special!

We had a robot party for him last night. It was a ton of fun and I will be sharing those pictures soon... but I want this post to be about my little birthday boy! He has come a long way in his three years. I will never forget the day he was born. I only got to hold him for a few minutes before they took him away to get him "cleaned up." When he didn't come back in the room, I called down to the nursery only to hear that he was in the NICU. That moment was one of those moments that I will never forget. I remember the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, I remember how the tears felt rolling down my cheeks, I remember the fear for the unknown. He was transferred to the NICU at Phoenix Children's Hospital where he spent the first 2 weeks of his life. Matt and I were by his side for most of those two weeks. We had Kaleb to take care of, so we did leave at night. I am so thankful everything turned out to be ok... and now I have a healthy 3 year old boy!

I always take the time to look through the pictures of the kids on their special day... Here is a little journey through pictures of Karson's three years!!
